Police officers rescued a man trying to kill himself by jumping off an apartment building in downtown Los Angeles Thursday, after the man was apparently distraught over a break up with his girlfriend.

According to KTLA, the man — legs dangling over the side of the building — bit the officer trying to hold on to him. Officers handcuffed him to the rail, which firefighters then cut and removed.

The man was placed on a psychiatric hold for evaluation.
